Please consider helping your child's teacher by volunteering to be a Classroom Parent! Classroom Parents help out in a number of ways, including

updating parents on important school/class events and planning classroom parties. It is a wonderful way to meet the kids and parents in your child's class. Contact Sandra Zinselmeier with your name, email address, child's name, grade, and teacher if you are interested. Thank you for volunteering, it makes a difference!


The Yearbook Committee is looking for First Day of School photos for this year's yearbook! The photos should 1) have two or more Fallsmead students in them

(sorry, no preschool siblings or parents in the photos) and 2) have been taken by a real camera (cell phone photos will not work with the yearbook software). Photos may be emailed toyearbook@fallsmeadpta.orgor put on a thumb drive/CD and submitted to the school office in an envelope marked Yearbook.


Save the date for our annual Donuts with Dad on Friday, September 16th at 8am. Dads (or

Any moms who are willing to help out at this great event would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Doyle Currey at vp4@fallsmeadpta.org or 240-643-9502 if you can help!
